LC/PC & LC/UPC Connectors


LC ConnectorThe LC is a small form factor (SFF) connector, ideal for high density applications. It has a zirconia ceramic ferrule measuring 1.25mm, and provides optimum insertion and return loss. It is used on small diameter mini-cordage (1.6mm/2.0mm) as well as 3.0mm cable. These LC connectors are Telcordia, ANSI/EIA/TIA and IEC compliant.
